Arrangement Note

These correspondence files are arranged alphabetically, with larger subject files following the letter. For example, after the "B" folder comes a separate folder for "Ball". The listing for each folder is selective and only highlights the more important correspondence. "See" references were added to facilitate research when Mr. Wernicke divided a subject among the various correspondents. Please note that Mr. Wernicke was familiarly known to everyone as "Dad" and this should not be construed as strictly in the family sense.
